The PPI Association’s 2013 annual conference—“Printlandia”—will be located on the scenic Kirkland waterfront in The Woodmark Hotal and Spa from Oct. 4 to 6.
The “Ink & Beyond” theme recognizes the changes that traditional print communications and manufacturing have experienced over the past 15 years, according to PPI executive director Jules Van Sant.
“We’ve loaded the weekend with inspiration, conversation and research to help prepare a roadmap for future growth opportunities and profits,” she said.
The weekend begins Friday afternoon with a “Wine Down in Washington” networking stroll through the Woodinville wine district. Constructive Cocktails and the annual Vendor Fair begins at 6pm, followed by dinner, the Hickey Picker presentation and an address by Printing Industries of America board chair Tim Burton.
The keynote will be presentation by the comedic duo of Larry and Meagan Johnson sharing the fun and sometimes frustrating fact about generational challenges with customers and employees.
There will be seven separate sessions on Saturday dealing with important industry issues, climaxing in the PrintROCKS! Awards dinner. Sunday is for networking and travel.
